I have always been drawn to India as my grandfather was Indian but I was 16 before I first visited on a school exchange. I stayed with a family in Kerala for a month and from the moment I landed I was captivated. I had never been to such a vibrant place and I left determined to return and discover more of the country. In the following years I visited Rajasthan, Goa, Mumbai and returned to Kerala. The incredible diversity of the country means that every trip is as exciting as the first and keeps me wanting to go back for more.
Other travels have taken me to South America, Southeast Asia and around Europe and I’ve been lucky enough to spend time living in Chile, Italy and Germany. I joined Audley with the hopes of sharing these experiences and showing others the best that India has to offer.
I'll never forget when…
A memory that has stayed with my from my last travels to India was a quiet moment in the early evening as I was sitting on the balcony of my room. Children had filtered up to the roofs around me to fly their kites and soon the golden sky was filled with dozens of kites and the sound of children laughing and shouting as they competed to see who could fly the highest or fastest. It was great fun to watch and a really lovely sight.
